Madison Gas and Electric Company (MG&E) has offered its customers rebates for solar water heaters since 1993. Both residential and commercial customers are eligible for the program. Note that MG&E does not actively promote this program to the public.
To apply for a solar water heater rebate, customers must first contact MG&E to confirm eligibility. The utility will send customers a rebate based on the size of the system. MG&E pays $15 for each square foot of collector area, up to 64 square feet. The maximum amount of the rebate is $960. In some cases, customers may receive a rebate for the installation of a renewable energy system that relies on passive solar, active solar space heat or photovoltaics. However, these alternatives to active solar water heating are only considered on a case-by-case basis.
